From: bevin73@hotmail.com

There's a song I just love that I've heard performed by Cherish the Ladies and the verse goes: Jimmy he's me love, he's me pride and he's me darling Jimmy leaves me wonder to the ends of the world etc...

I can't find the lyrics anywhere.. anyone have any idea of them?

Is it the same as Charlie is My Darling?

'Twas on a Monday morning
Right early in the year
When Charlie came to our town
The young Cavalier
O Charlie is my darling, my darling, my darling
O Charlie is my darling. the young Cavalier

I've got the rest if it's the right one.

Regards Mick Bracken

The name of the song is "The Galway Rover". I love it too. I think the words are in the cover of the CD that it is on. "A New Day"? I don't have it here, or I would look it up. I'll try to find it.

Here ya go -

THE GALWAY ROVER

I've the face of a stranger, with the smile of a rover
I'll take a glass at down Kinvarna, and a jug at Oughterard
Down the great donkey roads to the hills of Connemara
To my dark Spanish handsome love way down in Galway town

CHORUS: Where Jimmy he's me love, he's me pride, he's me darling
Jimmy leaves me wander to the ends of the world
Jimmy brings me love, gives me hope, and sets me dreaming
And when the leaves are turning, in his arms I'll settle down in Galway town

The spring brings the swallow, a fresh land of the rover
Where the blushing summer roses, shed their petals to the glen
And the long breathless evenings, where the loneliness is heaven
Makes the dreaming come so easy, on the road to Galway town. CHORUS

The curlew are calling, a shy form is prancing
All the ferns on them bubbling like a thousand gentle eyes
All the creatures of Eireann, sing their own sweet song of pleasure
As the rover goes a whistling down the road to Galway town. CHORUS TWICE

Frank, Ditto on the thank you's. I really love this song, but haven't had a chance to write the words down so I could sing it. I am a teacher and my CD is at school, so I couldn't get to it before January anyway. Thanks again.
